Comment srm? (Score 1) 569

Have any Slashdotters had any experience with BleachBit? Specifically, have you used it for erasing "yoga emails" or "bridesmaids emails?"

No, srm works fine for deleting things locally. As for email, secure erasure wouldn't help much; it's stored by Google so the NSA already has it.

Comment What does this run on? (Score 1) 125

I can't imagine they have hundreds of PS3s sitting in a datacenter to run this service. If this is running on an emulator on Xeons on in a datacenter, why don't they just sell emulated PS3 games to run directly on Windows and/or the PS4? I suppose they could have a datacenter full of rackmount Cell boxes which would be a little more interesting.

1. Digital audio means DRM audio

iTunes and later the Amazon MP3 store made DRM free audio a standard for audio you buy. This cat isn't going back in the bag. If you are whining that it's gettting harder to rip DRM from Spotify, etc. (music that you rent) then screw off, you're stealing and it's nobody's problem but your own.

2. Wireless headphones and speakers are fine, not great.

Wires are fine, not great. Shitty amps in phones are fine, not great. Bluetooth is great, your shitty $12 rig notwithstanding.

3. Dongles are stupid, especially when they require other dongles.

See 3, and use bluetooth.

4. Ditching a deeply established standard will disproportionately impact accessibility.

So will ditching DB-9 and floppy disks. Boo-hoo.

5. Making Android and iPhone headphones incompatible is incredibly arrogant and stupid.

You actually have a point here. MicroUSB and Lightning should be ditched in favor of USB-C. Yesterday.

6. No one is asking for this.
